Owls have had a very busy and exciting start to Year Four! We are enjoying our Flight topic, planning and carrying out parachute experiments and learning about the History of Flight in topic lessons. We loved our day at Duxford on Monday 21st September, the children were amazed by the Concorde and the sheer size of many of the aircraft! They were a credit to the school and their families.
We had a very exciting visit from an Airline Pilot on the 5th October, see some of the pictures on our visitors page! We really enjoyed our topic all about The Roman Empire, having found a time capsule with what seemed to be Roman items in before half term! The Roman Day was amazing, making a real Roman recipe for biscuits for the Roman Feast and creating oil lamps from clay! We also learnt about life in the Roman Army with battle practise and shield making, we even learnt some Latin words and Roman Numerals.
The Owls have settled well into the Spring Term and are all working hard on our topic Tribe!
We enjoyed meeting Mrs Frane and learning all about the African art and sculptures that she brought with her, she really sparked our interest! We have enjoyed writing our own Anansi spider story , we are having great fun creating our African masks and completing our Kenya projects.
We enjoyed a walk around Cambourne on Tuesday 23rd February to kick start our "Home Sweet Home" topic! Some photographs of us using our map skills can be found on the trips page. We were very careful with our four and six figure grid references, and all agreed that Cambourne is a lovely place for us to live in!
We rounded off our Local Study with some beautiful sculptures, designed and made by The Owls to reflect our lives in Cambourne. We also had a visit to the library to learn about what an important resource it is for us all, and to choose books! We are all very proud of our wonderful performances in the Lion King in March, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed! The Owls have learnt more about The Anglo Saxons after our interesting and fun day visiting West Stow Anglo Saxon Village . We have had a great time designing and making our own shields and helmets, and found out more about some Anglo Saxon rulers and customs. We enjoyed handling replica artefacts and really enjoyed eating our home made Anglo Saxon bread, vegetable stew and reading our Beowolf stories around the fire to end our topic!
